Papertry Blog Hop June 2011

This is the inspiration PTI put out for this months challenge. Dreamy huh! My 7 year old twin girls would be in heaven with all those toys and pretty dresses. Such sweet colors!

PTI's monthly blog hop is one of my favorite challenges because of the amazing projects everyone shares. I just love looking at all cards, such talented crafters out there. What did we do before blogs anyway? I love the colors of this challenge. I used a lot of the colors that Nicole did- Ripe Avocado, Simply Chartreuse, Spring Moss, Melon Berry, Berry Sorbet, and Raspberry Fizz. All supplies are from PTI - Large Scallop die, Simply Chartreuse ribbon, Botanical Silhouettes & Label Basics stamp sets. Hope you like my creation!

It is raining in Iowa today, I hope it is sunny where ever you are! Make it a great day!

One more try -Make It Monday #20: Reverse Masking

I wanted to try one more time with this weeks Papertrey challenge (am I allowed to do that?). This idea has been rolling around since I ordered the gingham background. Problem is I love the gingham in the flower but not sure I love the end results. So I tried again......

Maybe too much on the second try. Any advice? Is one better? Or what? Oh well, I gotta move on!

Supplies all PTI unless noted: Beautiful Blooms II & die, Gingham Bkg, Ink SU-Pumpkin pie, Daffodil Delight, Pacific Point

Make It Monday #20: Reverse Masking

I have two cards to share today. The first one is for Papertrey Inc's challenge - Reverse Masking. I received my June Release order today so I (of course) had to get ink on my new stamps ;-) (Don't tell my hubby, I am supposed to be doing laundry.) I used Tag It #5 and used a reverse mask to fill the center with Text Style and Daydreamer. I have become addicted to layering different mat dies, and on this card I used 3 mat stack dies.

Next, I made this card last night. I saw a card in Cards magazine last month and I had to go out and buy this balloon punch from Martha Stewart to go with my Everyday Button Bits Stamp set. So cute! And this it the card I made with that punch idea.

I hope you see something you like. Have a wonderful day and I gotta run and switch that laundry I am supposed to be taking care of ;-)

Supplies all PTi unless noted: Thanks for all you do card- Mat Stack 1,2 &5 Dies and Mat Stack #2 Stamp Set, Daydreamer, Text Style, Tag it #5, In Bloom PP.

Happy Birthday card- Mat Stack #5 die, Martha Stewart punch, My Minds Eye PP- Life of the Party, Birthday Basics and Everyday Button bits stamp set.

Make It Monday #19: Rock and Roll Technique

YA! A technique I am familiar with, and it gave me a chance to finally use my new cupcake dies. The girls are out of school for the summer and it is totally cutting into my stamping time. ;-) I saw this layout a while back and it has been hanging out in the back of my mind - Love it and I will totally use it again. I gasped when I realized I have no Hawaiian Shore ribbon, CRAZY! Next order I guess. Confession- I bought this cupcake set for this saying, is that terrible? I think it is so cute! I added a little glitter to the layers of the frosting but it didn't show up in the photo. Oh well, click on it if you want to see the detail!

My hubby has been traveling all week and he just got home so I am having a wonderful day and I hope you are too!

Supplies: all PTI unless noted Cupcake Collection and die, Lacey Circles from Nestibilities, Bitty Dots PP, Hawaiian Shores and Raspberry Fizz CS, Ink from SU- Melon Mambo and Pretty in Pink, Satin Ribbon, Hawaiian Shore Buttons.

Make It Monday #17: Cracked Glass Technique

This challenge is way out of my comfort zone. I am a no fuss stamper, the simpler the better for me. So, I hope you like my final card! I also have to apologize for the photo, it is very cloudy in Iowa today (and steamy). I used Botanical Silhouettes, Text Bkg, & the saying is from Marigolds set (all PTI). I used Nestablities Die #9 and Enchanted Evening ink PTI. Make it a great day!
